SWORD OF TRUST United States. 2019. Directed by Lynn Shelton. (88 mins.) Rated R. [CC]
Razor sharp, SWORD OF TRUST is a captivating, delightful and offbeat tale driven by a quartet of instantly-likable, flawed, funny characters!
"A smart, politically barbed comedy about truthiness and consequences."
- Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
This latest comic gem from Seattle native Lynn Shelton (YOUR SISTER'S SISTER) is an uproariously wild journey into the depths of conspiracy theory, Southern disillusionment and a witty retort to the rise of MAGA culture in America. When Cynthia & Mary (Jillian Bell & Michaela Watkins) show up to collect Cynthia’s inheritance from her deceased grandfather, the only item she’s received is an antique sword that was believed by her grandfather to be proof that the South won the Civil War. The two attempt to unload the object to a curmudgeonly pawnshop owner (Marc Maron) & his man-child sidekick (Jon Bass), but when the men discover there’s a black market for the relic, the four reluctantly join forces to sell this rarefied item to the highest bidder. SWORD OF TRUST is an outlandish odyssey into the underbelly of Southern paranoia and revisionist history that's sure to leave you laughing.
MIKE WALLACE IS HERE United States. 2019. Directed by Avi Belkin. (94 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC]
As solidly compelling as its subject's best reporting, MIKE WALLACE IS HERE is a worthy tribute and an engrossing look at the changing landscape of modern news.
"The film deftly weaves news and interview clips from Wallace's half-century on TV with the times he himself answered questions as tough as those he asked, fleshing out one of the country's last formidable journalists." - Scott Craven, Arizona Republic
With journalism in America on the chopping block and deemed the enemy of the people by our current administration, this fascinating exposé of 60 Minutes' fearsome newscaster Mike Wallace is as riveting as it is topical. Mirroring its subject's scrutinous gaze to better understand how we arrived at the precarious media tipping point menacing our democracy today, MIKE WALLACE IS HERE digs up decades of never-before-seen footage from the vault, crafting an all-archival portrait that explores everything that plagued this restless reporter. It is an enthralling, uncompromising portrait.
THE FAREWELL United States. 2019. Directed by Lulu Wang. (98 mins.) Rated PG. [CC,AD] in English and in Mandarin with English subtitles
Beautiful, touching and extremely funny, THE FAREWELL is a sparkling, sentimental story of love and respect for family!
"Extraordinary on every level, Lulu Wang's The Farewell starring an award-caliber Awkwafina builds a funny, touching and vital film about what makes a family in any culture, leaving you with cathartic tears." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"With impeccable craft, Wang has created a funny, heartfelt and bittersweet film that will ring riotously true for anyone who knows the joys and agonies of a large, complicated family, regardless of culture, ethnicity or nationality" - Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
Thank you, Salem, for showing up and standing up for the little guy! Our ticket sales for opening weekend of THE FAREWELL more than quadrupled what the corporate theater chain brought in for a movie we knew was meant for Salem Cinema!
Imbued with warmth and wit, THE FAREWELL is a heartfelt celebration of family bonds and the cultural traditions that tie us to one another. After learning their beloved matriarch has inoperable lung cancer, the family opts to not tell her and instead plans an impromptu wedding in China that allows the whole family to return home, under the guise of a festive shindig, to surreptitiously say their goodbyes. Billi (a knockout breakout performance from Awkwafina), a headstrong New York writer, seems to be the only family member struggling with whether they should reveal the news to her adored grandmother. Once the whole clan gathers, the grief and heartache give way to an overwhelmingly joyous wave of light and love in this incredible crowd-pleasing gem.
WHERE'D YOU GO, BERNADETTE United States. 2019. Directed by Richard Linklater. (109 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]
Based on the runaway best selling book, WHERE'D YOU GO, BERNADETTE from director Richard Linklater and starring Cate Blanchett is the adventurous tale of a woman on the road to self-discovery!
"Where’d You Go, Bernadette is about love, but for an American film, it’s something even rarer—a film about the rekindling of a woman’s brilliant career." - Michael Koresky, Film Comment
When deciding where to watch BERNADETTE, we hope you'll choose to see it at your favorite independently-owned movie theater where you know that you and movies always matter!
The psychological portrait of a complicated, intelligent and hilarious woman, this inspiring new comedy from director Richard Linklater (BOYHOOD, BEFORE SUNRISE) takes us on an epic journey to both the outskirts of the world and to the emotional brim of motherhood. Bernadette Fox (a crackling performance from Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett), after a few career disappointments as a widely-renowned architect, shifted her priorities to family life. When things start getting desperately domestic, however, she quietly slips away, compelled to reconnect with her creative passions. WHERE'D YOU GO, BERNADETTE is a warm, whimsical, witty and heartfelt meditation on living your best life.
